I have bought a nice RX470 4GB graphics card to upgrade my PC. The exact model is a MSI Radeon RX470 Gaming X 4GB. The driver version is 16.30 that seem to correspond to the 16.9.1 version in AMD


Unhopefully, when I installed it on my i-7 based config, at the mid of the process of the driver installation, the screen turned black with a 'No Signal' message, although the hard disk and sounds continued to go on. When rebooting, the systems boots, the graphics card LEDs and logo are on and the fan is turning, but during the boot the screen turns black again with the same 'no signal' message, generally just after the windows 10 blue logo on black screen appeared.


I tried on another PCI-e slot with the same frustrating result. Replacing the card with my old AMD 6800 1GB based card, uninstall the Crimson driver and re-install the 15.7 Catalyst version makes everything back to a well working status. My Windows version is up to date


Could someone please help ? I am a AMD Graphics enthusiast, but thius time I'm feeling a bit frustrated...
